After settling for McDonald’s biscuits the first morning in
The air conditioning was off the morning we visited, and was almost unbearable, but the smell and taste of good breakfast food held us captive long enough to enjoy Chocolate Pancakes and The Bagel That Ate
For lunch one day, we joined the local lunch crowd near Pier 17 on
That evening, back closer to the Novotel Hotel, where we were staying, we choose Ray’s Pizza. Ray’s is not your local family run pizza joint, but they do have many locations and serve up a good slice of pizza. Some places don’t offer single slices, but this place allowed me to walk down a line and point out several slices I wanted to try. This pepperoni and pineapple was simply delicious!
Steve and I had a great “boys night out” the evening Judy, Katie, Terri, and Julie took in “Hairspray”. We ended up a O’ Lunney’s Irish Pub just off Broadway. We were partying with the office crowd, still in their business work attire, while we displayed our manly legs in our tourist shorts!
Steve and I ordered, but he was the only one to get a meal. Through some southern low speaking misunderstanding, the little lady, who lived with her boyfriend, thought that the appetizer I ordered was my meal! I did not get upset, nor did I tell her of the mistake. I simply ordered another beer and watched Steve enjoy is fish and chips! Sure wish I had gotten to try that “corned beef”!
Oh yes, a side note, don’t you guys love these “afterburner” type hand dryers! My first experience with “Xlerator” dryers was at the Green Parrot Bar in
Judy, Katie, and I picked Rosie O’Grady’s for our last evening “big meal” and we were glad we did. The girls had a Prime Filet Mignon and I had, in honor of the trip, the New York Cut Sirloin Steak! Simply delicious and cooked to perfection!
After the meal we hammed around taking photos and then had the waitress take one of us. Unfortunately, the window light caused the camera not to fire the flash, so it was not as good as I had hoped. However, we enjoyed ourselves for a little over a $100 plus tip!
Yep, you can always find something to eat in
